Taylor Lautner paid a visit to the set of The Ellen Show and played one of Ellen's favorite games on the show. For a great cause, Taylor got soaking wet and it's good to know his muscles haven't changed at all since his days of being Jacob. Skip to 2:30. You're welcome! ;) (via dolly.com.au)

There might be a possibility that 1D's Daddy Direction Liam Payne is becoming a real life dad! There's no official word yet, but fans have their eyes on Cheryl Cole's photos as she shows what appears to be a bit of a baby bump. (via dolly.com.au)

There's a good bromance brewing with the two Canadian Popstars, Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes. Remember when Justin said he didn't know who Shawn Mendes is? All worries of them having a feud are over just as Shawn covered Justin's "What Do You Mean?" on Instagram. And now, Justin Bieber took to Twitter to show his support for Shawn's newest album Illuminate. (via teenvogue.com)


That's not all! Look at what he has to say regarding Shawn's voice.

After Christina Grimmie's untimely death, the YouTube community gave the late singer a much deserved tribute at the streamy awards. Fellow YouTuber Shane Dawson gave a heartfelt speech where he says:

"She started because she wanted people to connect with her music. Her dream was to have one of her songs be someone's favorite song."

Remember Christina's "Just a Dream" cover with Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider? Both YouTubers gave tribute and performed a beautiful medley of Christina's original songs and covers, then ended with Christina's own ballad "With Love." (via mtv.com)


There's a theory going around which claims that Taylor Swift may be dropping an album any time soon. The Washington Post developed the 5 theories as to the possible album drop. (via eonline.com)

  1. Taylor will realease the album unannounced
  2. Its release is most likely to be October
  3. It will be released on a Sunday
  4. Since it's Tay's 10-year anniversary since her first album, this one is set to be a priority
  5. It's going to be related to Swift's favorite number so it's either Oct 23, 2016 (10.23.16) which adds up to 13 or Nov. 13, 2016 (11.13.16)

Theory or not, we just can't wait for another T-Swift album!
